Gel Seat

Postby pgfireman » Mon Apr 13, 2015 3:46 am



Hi everyone,

I know I have read a few times about folks buying a "gel seat" for their wing from Walmart. Is this the pads for wheelchairs? Or is there something more specific for driving or biking? I'm heading off on a trip in a couple of weeks - Ontario to SC via the BRP and I think me old arse might like a little extra comfort this run. I'm usually pretty good for a 5 - 800 km day but seeing the season just began this weekend for us frozen northerners I haven't built up the resistance yet! Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. cheers!

Wife wanted one for the back and we couldn't find any at Walmart even in the States.She ended up getting one(looks like it's for a kitchen chair)at Canadian Tire for $12.Turned backwards it fits the back seat of my Corbin perfectly,but I don't know how it would look on the front.She loves the thing.For $12 it might be worth a look for you.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Thanks Joe, they are not available here either now. I did find one in Canadian Tire (they sell more than tires!) it's probably the same as the one Wally world used to have. I appreciate the help though. Really excited now - my brother in law and I set out on the 24th, he's riding his 2001 Yamaha Venture in pristine shape with 75000 kilometres and me on my wing with 134000km . We are having some great weather here right now and hoping it will hold for the trip. I will let you know.
